The authors on this list are mainly ones who have written series that I follow.  Here they are in no particular order.


Terry Pratchett

Witches Abroad (Discworld, #12; Witches #3)Witches Abroad by Terry Pratchett

Of course he is number one.  There are over 40 Discworld novels plus a few others.


Rick Riordan

He writes the Percy Jackson series and the Kane Chronicles.



Daniel Silva

This is a series of spy thrillers.  This is number 15.



Lindsey Davis

The Ides of April (Flavia Albia Mystery, #1)The Ides of April by Lindsey Davis

She wrote the Marcus Didius Falco books about a private investigator in ancient Rome and now is writing books about his daughter.  I read all 20 of the Falco books and 2 of the next series and one stand alone.

Sherri S. Tepper

The FrescoThe Fresco by Sheri S. Tepper

She’s one of my favorite authors.  I’ve read 16 of her books and I’m not even close to finishing everything she’s written.


Elizabeth Peters

Crocodile on the Sandbank (Amelia Peabody #1)Crocodile on the Sandbank by Elizabeth Peters

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I’ve read the 19 Amelia Peabody mysteries about a family of Egyptologists.



Christopher Moore

Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood PalLamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve read 12 of his books but Lamb is definitely my favorite.


Robert Ludlum

The Icarus AgendaThe Icarus Agenda by Robert Ludlum

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

He was the first author I purposely binge read.  He was also the first author to crush me by dying (though that hasn’t really slowed down the number of books published in his name).  I’m not a Bourne fan though.  My favorite by far is The Icarus Agenda.

Dick and Felix Francis

Dick Francis's DamageDick Francis’s Damage by Felix Francis

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Dick Francis wrote 30 books according to Goodreads and I’m pretty sure I’ve read them all and I’m continuing the read the books his son is writing in his name.


Jim Butcher

Storm Front (The Dresden Files, #1)Storm Front by Jim Butcher

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love the Dresden Files (15 books) and the Codex Alera (6 books).  There is a new series starting soon.
